At UVHS, we love connecting people and pets! That’s why we embrace a flexible approach to adoptions that is both time-efficient and gives pets and adopters the best chance for lasting success.
Most often, an adoption will take place on the very same day a person walks through our doors and falls in love with a new furry best friend.
A member of our adoption team will visit with you about your hopes for your relationship with your new pet and then help you locate a pet who will fit well in your life.
- When adopting a dog, we ask that all canines and humans living in the prospective adopter’s home meet the UVHS dog.
- When adopting a cat, we ask that all humans living in the prospective adopter’s home meet the UVHS cat. If needed, we can accept one adult in the household who we will call by phone to verify acceptance of a new cat in the home. If an adopter’s dog has never lived with a cat, we are happy to work with you to introduce your dog to the UVHS cat prior to adoption.
